In today’s competitive market, the broadband industry in Nigeria has been driven by the need to provide better service coverage while reducing infrastructure costs. The solution lies in determining the optimum route for a planned fibre optic laying project
STL’s map data powers the operations of other telecoms companies in Nigeria such as Airtel, iPNX, Galaxy Wireless Communication, Powerlink Ltd, etc The reasons for the popularity of STL’s map database lie in the way it was built. Teams of field analysts fan out across Nigeria each day, continually driving and redriving the Nigerian roads, using proprietary digital data collection tools so that STL’s digital map data more closely reflects real world conditions. The result is digital map data like no other in Nigeria.
Ireti Ajala (CEO of STL) said; “As Nigeria’s foremost GIS and map data solution provider, it is always our desire to continue to strive harder to meet our clients’ map data demands and requirements consistently. Our vector map data would provide extremely powerful capabilities which would help Sunmail Telecom Ltd’s Engineers work more efficiently at each stage of the design and operation of the proposed fibre optics project.”
William Ikiabo (Sunmail Telecom Limited’ Project Manager) said, “The use of map data from STL which would underpin our fibre optics design will help us plan our fibre routes more effectively and optimally without getting involved in negotiating too many difficult Right Of Way concessions. STL’s map data would also provide our whole organisation with access to critical asset planning data that will support our drive for enhanced customer service and improved operational efficiency”
